in my opening remarks that john brennan came here to explain there is a legal framework ar. we administration -- the administration is developing a counter-terrorism playbook. we are aware that some of the congress want to see the legal memoranda that has been prepared by the obama justice department explaining the policy around targeting american citizens abroad. it is a careful policy. i personally think as a former member of congress that in a classified setting, those memos should be made available to congress. there should be a public discussion of not all the details but of the general subject. i am pleased to raise it -- it is the kind of thing the wilson center does. we want to have conversations around tough security issues. other questions? >> thank you. i and the ambassador of costa rica. ambassador of costa rica. our country is doing well on the security and economic front of your fighting with institutions that put a lot of -- fighting with other institutions. we are the conduit to the u.s. stock market drug market -- the u.s. drug market. your department, is worki
senator is leading by a 22-point margin for senator john kerry's soon to be vacant seat. perhaps this is his return to washington that he hinted about. >>> spelling might not be in the senator's wheelhouse. three straight tweets posted around midnight showed spell check would be a good idea. misspelled words including you're. and he butchered whatever. >>> a member of the super bowl bound ravens plans to use the nfl's media day on monday to talk about the importance of legalizing same sex marriage. and if the ravens become super bowl champs he says he will go on the ellen show to talk more about marriage equality and says he will do a little dancing, as well. and lebron and the crew are heading to the white house. president obama will be welcoming the heat to the white house tomorrow to celebrate that team's 2012 championship. >>> we flashback to 1998 when the then first lady uttered a phrase that stuck to her like glue ever since. more ahead, plus. >>> the last time senate democrats passed a budget the ipad didn't even exist. >> so how long ago was that? they are everywhere now.
of the house progressive caucus on the president's call to arms. john nichols of the nation magazine on his defense of the big three. terry o'neill on a historic speech for women. jonathan alter and james peterson on the cultural impact of a president linking seneca falls, selma and stonewall. and my thoughts on a new hope for the american class. >> progress does not compel us to settle centuries long debates about the role of government for all time, but it does require us to act in our time. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. this was a big deal. in the 57th formal inauguration of an american president, barack obama delivered one of the most progressive speeches ever given by a commander in chief. with more than a million people in attendance, the president took the ceremonial oath of office on the steps of the united states capitol. president obama did not set out to lower expectations of his second term. instead, he established the goals of a progressive agenda. >> my fellow americans, we are made for this moment, and we will seize it, so long as we seize i
for that, so i completely agree with john. when it comes to telling the republican party what they ought to believe in, that's not something that members of the rnc can do, that's something that the candidates have to do to say, here's the values we want to articulate and the policies we stand for and it doesn't just consist of we're against what president obama says. >> shortening the primary calendar, how would that help? how would that work? >> they just came off a primary calendar which had a primary and it took romney a long time to become the actual nominee, to get some of the other guys off the stage. i think what they'd like to be able to do is consolidate around the candidate very quickly in the future so that they can focus their resources on that general election. of course, it always looks that way when you have the incumbent president on the other, and they may change the calendar some. we've been watching them right now in states across the country and look for opportunities to change the way electoral map is done and the way electoral votes are portioned and there are a lo
friend john mentioned a few minutes ago. part of what i heard was some of the difficulties we encountered during the invasion of iraq and the occupation or things that damage the republican brand in a deeper way. you have a lot to say. you have a thing or two to say about a number of other issues. is it your view is that republicans need to get right on foreign policy and that is a core issue that is affecting everything else? are you seeing it as a garnish on the salad? not essential. >> as a party, we need to have john and bill on that wing of the party. we also need those who acted and soggy world like we did -- and saw the world like we did in congress or we believed in a restrained foreign policy. that is part of the balance. did you go back and look at what william buckley said about iraq. he said it was not a conservative of venture. there's nothing conservative about believing that you're going to be able to change the way people live and think in other countries that do not have a democratic background. i think the bigger problem really has to duet the domestic side of things. as
think if you look at these numbers, over 70% of americans like him. he has a 52% approval rating. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. those are pretty good numbers. and i think also there are glimmers of hope for those of us who believe the president has stayed on his side of pennsylvania avenue too much. he said over the past week or two, his daughters are getting older, they don't like hanging around dad as much anymore. >> he's lonely. >> he's lonely. the president used to tell anybody that would listen, i work and then i go upstairs and i'm with my family. you can't trivialize the fact that he is talking about reaching out more, not only to republicans, we hear the same complaint from democratic senators as well, it's a good sign and let's hope things get done. we have to make this city work again. >> tom's point, the perils of a second term, you have thought about this and talked to the president about it. how does he map out these next four years? >> first of all, i want to say i appreciate the priorities that tom laid out. but there's a larger priority of which this is part
or the elderly or the disabled. the next four years are going to be very interesting. let's turn to john nichols, washington correspondent of "the nation" magazine. and john, "the nation" magazine was so impressed with the speech today that there was a lot of rewriting going on. >> yep. and i sometimes have to do a lot of that rewriting. >> remarkably progressive today? >> yeah, it was. we were struck by it. we set a high standard for this president. we don't let him off the hook when we disagree with him. we have editorialized critically about him. but i think there was a pretty strong sense today that not just on domestic policy, but even on some foreign policy, he moved. sometimes the criticism was he kept a little too much of bush, this was a breaking point. a lot of what lingered, some of the people, some of the policies seem to be pushed back now. >> was this the speech that liberals have been waiting for? >> sure it was. >> and now is it the foundation for the next several years? >> well, barack obama is a complicated man. we have to be honest about him. >> he is a deal maker. >> yeah, he
and state. and obviously, john kerry had his first appearance before a senate panel yesterday, getting some tough questions about benghazi as hillary clinton did this week as well. >> reporter: he was, luke. and by all accounts, senator kerry's nomination is really expected to sail through. everyone expects him to be confirmed. but what happened yesterday is that he got some tough questions about secretary clinton's testimony a day earlier on benghazi. what the administration knew, when they knew it. secretary clinton got some tough questions from senator johnson. she responded by saying, what did it matter, at one point, in a heated moment, and senator kerry was asked about that exchange yesterday. take a listen. >> secretary clinton's reaction was, and i quote, "what difference, at this point, does it make?" are you willing to work with me, or do you basically kind of agree with hillary clinton, with that that's kind of yesterday's news and let's move on? >> well, senator, if you're trying to get some daylight between me and secretary clinton, that's not going to happen here today. >> i d
-- that, a columnist from "the new york times." we will get right into it. john, hot you wrote a book a few years back called open-" -- "bush country to go in which he celebrated the achievement of our 43rd president. he is a guy that thought deeply about immigration reform, poverty, and trying to craft a middle class agenda. now a lot are thinking the same thing. do you think republicans were too quick to abandon george w. bush? >> sorry. i was tweeting. [laughter] yes and no. politically, republicans distanced themselves from george w. bush because it was the thing to do. numbers do not lie. he became very unpopular. parties do not have to embrace figures and politicians to become unpopular. my view is that a lot of distress over bush's domestic agenda from which they fled in 2005. it had been an ancillary result of failure to defend iraq and have a favorable recognition. >> what might have been a successful policy agenda? >> i think the entire country stopped listening to president bush which would be good for the country when it lost faith that he was managing the war effectively.
's no question that we can. and we will fight it, reverend. just this week, democrats led by john lewis dropped the bill if in the house. it's called the voter empowerment act. it is designed to stop some of these deceptive prak fiss. we are not going to sit by and allow them to steal elections just because they can't win fair and square. now, governor, you've seen this up close in pennsylvania. the ramifications of this is to really undo the whole democratic process that has been used since we started with the electoral college. >> there's no question, reverend sharpton. it would have disastrous and unfair consequences. for example, in pennsylvania, go back to the 2008 election. barack obama carried this state by 11 points, almost a historic landslide. but senator mccain would have gotten 10 to president obama's 11 at the time. >> i think we all should be aware that states have the right to proportion their votes in any way they want. in nebraska, they already do this. it would be hard to be back -- i will tell you this. we're going to fight it tooth and nail in pennsylvania. thai treed they t
on the democratic side. >> that's also one of the areas where john six pack sitting at home saying i have to show my driver's license to buy sudafed. it kind of makes sense to be subjected to a background check to buy a gun, as well. do you think, christina, that the video game industry and the entertainment industry, are they going to get a pass at the end of this process? >> i mean, that's a tough question what you define as a pass, but what you are looking at is people preparing to sort of take the heat, particularly in president obama's state of the union and he's not afraid to mention video games sxhooez not afraid to say this is an effort and the nra has said that, as well. so it's definitely going to get a look, but this is not a new issue and what manu says is exactly right. you are going to expect a political fight on both sides on this. >> gabe rielle giffords will spend more money in 2013, and this will will be a battle. >> she mentioned the google fireside chat. i want to play a snippet of what vice president biden said and talk about it on the other side. take a listen. >> i'm much less
's also part of that old republican guard. he's very close friends with house speaker john boehner for example. i think you're going to see as the republican party changes some of these old guard republicans leaving the senate for obvious reasons, it's no fun to be in the minority. you don't get anything done. and looking at another couple of years of that is not very appealing. and it's part of what the republicans are doing is trying to figure out who are they going to be as a party. and as these elder statesmen leave, it creates the ability for guys like marco rubio and newer players on the scene like ted cruz from texas, for instance, to help shape that party. >> all right. andy sullivan, chris press, gentlemen, thank you both. >>> just ahead she's a woman at the center of the firestorm over torture scenes in that new movie ""zero dark thirty."" now the director kathryn big low is talking about what she had in mind while shooting those controversial scenes. [ thinking ] i wonder what other questionable choices i've made? [ club scene music ] [ sigh of relief ] [ male announcer
